THIS PAGE IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION

This page is intended to elaborate on how to craft tools and weapons in more detail. It's recommended that you read the starter guide first.

Tools and weapons don't come easy in Vintage Story and they shouldn't! In real life, these things aren't easy to make so it's very challenging yet rewarding to obtain these in Vintage Story.

Making tools and weapons is a multi-step process that involves crafting, smelting and smithing. Below we'll go over all the steps needed to make that awesome sword you always wanted!

Note: I use the term "Tools" throughout this article to denote "Tools and Weapons" since a weapon is really a tool of death! No really I just don't want to type that much. :-)

Basics

Tools can be made from several different raw materials. The raw material you choose determines the process which is required to create your tool. In general, tools that are more useful are harder to make and also harder to find the raw materials.

Smelting

To smelt metal into ingots you need to create ingot molds and a crucible. Crucibles are containers that hold molten metals and ingot molds hold those metals in their liquid form to allow them to cool into the shape of an ingot. Once you have crafted both a crucible and at least one ingot mold you must create a fire pit in order to heat them to a burned state. Once you have done this you can use them to create your ingots.

Smithing

Now that you have your shiny new ingots it's time to put them to use. But you won't be able to use them in their hardened form. You'll need to heat them up to a temperature which makes them malleable, so you can hammer them into shape.

First create a forge. You need this to heat the ingots. You need to fill the forge with coal. Then light the coal with a torch. Place the ingots on the lit coal and let them heat up. Once heated, right click to grab one and head on over to your anvil. Place the hot ingot on the anvil and you will see a tool recipe menu pop up. Select which tool you would like to smith. Then select your hammer. Press the 'F' key to change smithing modes. Each mode allows you to hammer the hot metal in one direction or another. The recipe grid will show you which way you need to hammer.

Clay Molds

The Axe and Pickaxe can also be crafted using clay molds. If don't want to create an anvil or ingots you can instead pour the molten metal directly into clay molds.
